E-Cigarette & Vaping Resources

There is no doubt that e-cigarettes are vastly healthier than tobacco cigarettes, which kill nearly 500,000 Americans every year. E-cigarettes don’t make you smell, they don’t ruin your teeth, they don’t poison those around you with secondhand smoke. E-cigarettes can help you stop or reduce your smoking habit, as they’ve done for millions of former-smokers already.
